Congratulations to all who joined in Women's Marches all over the world, in person and virtually!
Since mid-December, It’s Time Network has been so pleased to actively support march efforts by introducing march organizers to our funding networks and hosting web calls featuring both DC and Sister March organizers and other professionals to provide information to march participants and across our networks.
As you may know, It's Time Network also conducted a text campaign from Friday, January 20th through Tuesday, January 24th, in which march participants were encouraged to share their participation, whether in person or virtual, via text. The count was not officially organized by the lead organizers of the march, but it was developed by ITN to support their efforts to include those marchers who participated spontaneously or through virtual means. All information collected through the campaign is secure, and count numbers will only be shared with march organizers.
We continue to work in partnership with this unifying movement, and are in contact with march organizers to provide them the information you supplied.
As we move forward, the Women’s March organizers have developed a 10 Actions for the first 100 Days campaign to activate women and allies for change following the march. You can find the action you can do today and sign up for updates here.
Thank you for making your participation known and spreading the word to other marchers! If you have further questions, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
